Next July archaeologists Dr Carenza Lewis and Paul Blinkhorn will be excavating up to a dozen gardens in Acle to unearth the community's rich history.
This summer both Time Team regulars visited the Acle to dug test pits in gardens as part of a community history event.
With the help of local school children they found many remains dating from Roman times to the second world war.
